Here is a little point of interest that I seemed to remember and had to Google to answer my own question:

In 1910, Baker City residents voted to change the name of the town to Baker, but after another vote in 1989 the official name was changed back to Baker City.

A little more trivia:
We met some people from Baker City, Oregon that bought a ranch at Baker, Mt. :D

I had forgotten that. It had to have been a shock to go from your pretty country to the wide open spaces.
He passed away and she left, but I lost track of where she wound up.

And I met Nicky and Mike the very next day. Being new here I have been over their direction yet. Their corner of the county looks a lot nicer than my corner.

Mine is pretty steep. I guess the sign on the road through my property that says watch out for bighorn sheep should have been a clue. But I am loving it here. Wish I had moved here 40 years ago.

Well, a hop skip and jump away. Seems like the summer of 2019 was kind of that way. One Internet acquaintance from Nebraska took a trip to the Oregon Coast. I found out too late, tried to make a connection. We just couldn't.
